Blackboard is committed to protecting the privacy of all users. There are changes that impact the end user experience and actions required of administrators due to changing regulations globally concerning use of data and privacy, including the European Union General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR).
The Building Block Security Management: Data Use and Privacy Disclosure is included in Blackboard Learn SaaS and Blackboard Learn SaaS Flexible Deployment Option (FDO): 3400.0.1, Q2 2018.
Security Management: Data Use and Privacy Disclosure replaces the Building Block Security Management: Cookie Disclosure, which was originally intended to address regulations in the European Privacy Data Directive. The new Building Block is part of the core system and can't be disabled or removed, and is required to be in the enabled state.
